Robert William Crowe
March 9, 1955 – July 13, 2006
Robert passed away peacefully at home with me, his partner Kathy, and his brother Ron, after courageously and persistently fighting leukemia. He was one of the most unique people I ever met. It was never dull. He always kept us laughing and his sense of humour never failed, even at the very end.
He loved riding “Ruby” his beautiful red Harley. He was a local fixture on his bike with his gorilla Koko riding on the back. He put over 300,000 km on her. His Harley group is feeling his loss deeply. He’s the only person who always decorated his bike to the nines for the toy run and it always looked fantastic. He was the best road captain and was a lot of fun to ride with. He was incredibly creative and talented artist. He was always trying out new art forms. He had a beautiful singing voice and people were often surprised at the deep rich voice when they heard him sing. He was in the United Church Choir for years. He could have been famous with his voice, but preferred to jam with his friends. He had a wonderful store of knowledge about many things. I called him the king of haywire because he could always put things together cheaply with duct tape and bungie cords. He was frugal and loved thrift shops, but he was a very generous person. To his friends he was always dependable and honourable. To me he was considerate, funny, kind and loving. He was my rock and could help me with any problem. I miss him deeply but I am so happy for his release from suffering.
There will be a memorial service to
follow at the end of August.
Thanks for the journey, Robert.
You’re the best!
